LBCSR & LSWR Joint Fleet
Mayflower (1866-1910)
Victoria (1881-1899)
Lymington (1) (1883-1927)
Duchess of Edinburgh (1884-1910)
Duchess of Connaught (1884-1910)
Princess Margaret (1893-1928)
Duchess of Kent (1897-1933)
The Duchess of Kent in 1897, for Isle of Wight services from Portsmouth. She served in this area until 1933, when she was sold to the New Medway SP Co as the Clacton Queen in the autumn of 1933. She took the place of the City of Rochester on the Ipswich-Clacton run, and also appeared on the Strood-Southend route.
The Clacton Queen was sold in November 1935 to Mersey & Blackpool Steamship Company, for a short-lived service from Liverpool to New Brighton, Blackpool and Fleetwood as the Jubilee Queen. The service operated from Easter 1936 until June only. In July Jubilee Queen was transferred to the Jubilee Shipping Company who also ran a few trips from Liverpool to Blackpool, but this was even more short-lived than the previous venture. the colours at this time were black hull, white saloons and a yellow funnel with red band and black top. At the end of July, Jubilee Queen was acquired by S.B.Kelly, and on 9th August initiated a service from Barrow to Blackpool and/or Fleetwood (when tidal conditions prevented access to Blackpool North Pier). In practice the calls at Blackpool ceased the following day, and subsequent trips were all to Fleetwood, the last being on 13th September. Jubilee Queen was sold for scrap in 1937.
